Hi,


Please bare with me, I'm so totally noob on this.

Is it okay to install Win 7/8 for first time with a factory overclocked GPU? like asus DCU II Top or the gigabyte windforce OC? I've heared that installing an OS with a hardware that is overclocked you will get a system error?

Or should I just first install Win 7/8 and then after installation of the OS, I will put my GPU on my motherboard? Does my system will automatically detect it? Means, I will turned OFF my system, put my GPU on my motherboard and after it loads my system wil detect my GPU?

Yes, installing Win 7 with a factory OCed GPU will work just fine. Just install Windows as you normally would. After Windows is updated, install your video drivers and you'll be fine. No worries here.

edit--its only if you had an unstable cpu (processor) overclock that you might have an issue installing os
